    Chef #347422's Note:

    I started working with Celestino a few months ago and started compiling some of his recipes for a food blog. I tried this one at home and aside from the splitting of the lobster, I absolutely loved it.

      I'm rating this 5 stars, however, I did make some changes as it wasn't really coming together the way the recipe reads. It says to evaporate the white wine and the brandy, but by then the lobster is already cooked through. I removed the lobster pieces to keep them from overcooking and then I went to the next step. After cooking for 5 minutes as stated it was a thin, watery texture with no flavor at all. I added 4 tablespoons of butter and some heavy cream, more salt, some cayenne and I let that simmer trying to thicken it up. Was better, but still not great. Then I added some shredded cheese, the Quattro Formaggio cheese blend from Trader Joes which I have around to make pizza with. Added about 3/4 cup of that and melted it slowly over low heat. Then I spooned sauce over pasta, topped with warm lobster chunks and added touch more cheese on top. Turns out great, but not the way the recipe reads. Will make again, but will follow these directions next time.Update 5/09 I didn't cook the lobster in the sauce as I stated above that then it gets too chewy. I used lobster broth instead of the vegetable broth to give it more depth and I also added about 2 oz. of tomato paste in addition to the 3 oz. of fresh tomato puree that the recipe calls for. Other than that, I followed my previous instructions to make this pasta.
